It is blowing so hard that I-70 and Berthoud Pass are closed....so I have now lost one day on the mountain...I hope it opens soon...I was looking forward to a few days of snowboarding....

I think anywhere from 50-70 mph gusts which with snow powder can make for some interesting conditions and avalanche issues....

Yep, but when that loose snow is blowing in to channel like canyons...it is a bit worse than getting hit by tumble weed;)
